The motherboard I'm looking to get has a 24pin and 2x 8pin connectors on it. The power supply has a 24pin, 8pin, 4pin, 6pin and a 6+2pin connector. Will this work correctly or should I look for a power supply with 2x 8pin connectors on it?

There are adapter cables such as this Startech cable.

Having said that, I would get a PSU that has the proper cables built-in due to a correct PSU having enough amps on the correct rails, etc.
